Singapore is set to get new technology to help in preventing ship collisions.

The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) said it has engaged the services of the Agency for Science, Technology and Research's Institute of High Performance Computing (IHPC), Singapore Management University (SMU) and Fujitsu to develop new predictive technologies for maritime vessel traffic management.

These predictive technologies will tap the power of artificial intelligence and big data analytics, to enhance navigational safety within the Port of Singapore.

The initiative is in line with the Maritime Transformation Program unveiled during this year’s MPA budget, with strategic sea space and maritime traffic management as one of the stated focus areas.

The R&D for this collaboration was initiated by the Urban Computing and Engineering Center of Excellence, a public-private partnership between A*STAR, SMU and Fujitsu which was set up in 2014.
